Hot chocolate could warm you up on a cold day, but what about those unmercifully cold sub-zero days? This recipe uses a combination of spices and creamy chocolate to create a smooth drink with a lingering warmth. Garnish with a candy cane or cinnamon stick if desired.

Directions

  1. Place the white chocolate in a medium metal bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, or in the top half of a double boiler. Allow the chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally until smooth. Stir in cayenne pepper and cinnamon. Whisk in the egg until smooth.
  2. Gradually whisk in one cup of the milk until completely incorporated, about 2 minutes. Gradually whisk in remaining milk, and heat until hot, but not simmering. You do not want a skin to form on top of the milk. It will be ready to drink when either the taste of the cayenne is masked by the temperature of the milk (the spiciness of the pepper will remain), or when the hot chocolate is at your desired temperature. Ladle the hot chocolate into mugs and garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

This was nice twist on regular hot chocolate. I didn't have any cayenne papper on hand so I substituted chili powder instead and it was still pretty good. You may want to strain it before you drink it if you don't like little bits of floating spices.

Now this stuff is awesome! I have always been a white chocolate fan. I also love cayenne pepper. I never would have dreamed of ever having the two together. I can't say enough good about it. Best hot chocolate I ever had! Beware though! Do not drink too much! This will do to you the same as eating too much candy will do to you. You stomach will not feel well, trust me. You can have too much of a good thing. Still 5 stars for sure! Emailing this one all over the place!
